Annoying SVN Problem -- My Fault?

I've been trying to capture the entire ALFS SVN repository by executing:

    svn co svn:// ALFS

This works great for the other LFS projects, but when I try this with
ALFS I get the following messages:

    Fetching external item into
    Checked out external at revision 1519.

    Fetching external item into
    svn: URL 'svn://'
    doesn't exist

At this point, the svn operation stops.

Is this an acceptable way to retrieve the entire repository?
Is this symptomatic of a problem on the svn server?
